buildings and properties in the city which don't pay taxes but use our services and use our roads, put the stress or extra burden on property taxpayers. that is part of the burden they have to bear for being the capital city and some times what the state wants to do doesn't necessarily follow the typical ordnances most businesses and residents have to comply with. city ordinances don't necessarily apply to the state so it can be a fraction point but we try to work through those things and understand the benefits of being the capital city far away from the down side that we have to deal with but the biggest challenge is always jobs and that is true of any community. you have seen what we have to offer. it is a vibrant community and there's a lot going on and a brand-new hospital coming online and brand new courthouse that is a $15 million project and the commerce center down the road that is the major construction. we are going to have a big construction project on the interstate that will make traffic move better and commercial development going on in this city and in the census w

rates are amongst the lowest in the world even though the deficit left us by labour was one of the highest in the world. if we did what labour wants and we water down our plane, the risk is that the people we borrow money from woodstock to question our ability and our resolve to pay off our debts. some might actually refuse to lend us any money at all. others would only send it to us at higher interest rates. that would hurt the economy and it would hit people hard. if you have a mortgage of 100,000 pounds, just a 1% increase in interest rates would mean an extra thousand pounds to pay each year. so labour's plan to borrow more is actually a massive gamble with our economy and our future. it would squander all of the sacrifices we have already made. and let me put it like this. we are here because we spent too much and borrowed too much. how on earth can be answered be more spending and more borrowing?

46 of us who worked at "newsweek" sued the magazine for gender discrimination and hiring and promotion. we were protesting a system in which virtually all of the riders were men and all of the women were researchers or fact checkers. it was a system that henry had devised when he created "time" magazine in 1929. he separated the editorial functions of the newsmagazine. and a newspaper report goes out, reports the star, comes back and writes the story and is responsible for the accuracy of the story. he separated those functions in which the reporters in the field reported a story, sent files to a writer in new york who wrote the story, and then the story was fact checked. and only women were hired as fact checkers, and all the reporters and writes women. so "newsweek" started in 1933 they simply copied the times format. if you apply to "newsweek" and wanted to be a writer you were simply told that women do not write at "newsweek." if you want to write go somewhere else. and, in fact, that's what a lot of women did. women who knew they wanted to be journalists or had been work

to improve relations with damascus and used senator john kerry as an intermediary. it reversed the bush administration's attempt to mobilize international pressure against the assad regime, and it reversed a decision to withdraw the u.s. ambassador. when the democratic-controlled senate balked at approving a new u.s. ambassador to syria, the administration made an end run by naming robert ford as ambassador while congress was in recess in december 2010. and although ford later performed ably in demonstrating solidarity with syria's opposition, peaceful demonstrators, he could have done that in a different diplomatic position. didn't necessarily have to be an ambassador. unfortunately, sending an ambassador back to damascus when the assad regime had not modified its hostile policies sent a message that washington was eager to restore relations despite syria's continued role as a spoiler in the middle east. and this also hinted that there would be little price to be paid for future hostile acts. one of the principal motivations for the or administration's glossing over syria's longst
